Comment: This tool was incredibly useful in not only explaining, but showing the similarities and differences in human bones and other animals. In terms of understanding evolution, it drives home the idea that we all came from one similar ancestor.

Technical Remarks:

This website was very unique in that it allowed one to look at particular bones from six different angles. It allowed me to really see the similarities and differences. I also found the site very easy to navigate. Most importantly, the site made learning about bones fun, interactive, and interesting.
Time spent reviewing site: I spent a great deal of time comparing the bones of Humans to that of Gibbons, Gorillas, Chimpanzees, and Baboons. I also spent a lot of time looking over the F&Q page on the website which proved to be a wealth of information.
